Upcoming Classes

Running with Scissors Tool Case

This class will give you the opportunity to learn several different skills such as creating mesh and vinyl pockets as well as inserting zippers that will hold all your favourite notions. It also has two exterior zippered pockets . I know everyone dislikes zippers but these are easy once you learn the technique!! This tool case would be a wonderful addition to your sewing accessories & if you made the Stand up Tote it works as a companion case.

Disappearing Nine – Patch with a Twist

I love the disappearing nine-patch, but it CAN get a little Monotonous – so….why not make one little change to spice things up a bit? With one package of charms (or 40 = 5” squares) some from your stash, you end up with a nice little table-topper or a new baby quilt. You might choose a “seasonal” charm pack and make it just for Christmas, or Fall, or Summer or whatever your pack makes you think of.

Stripes, Stripes, Stripes

Have you ever found a wonderful striped fabric that you loved but, couldn’t find a pattern to showcase the fabric other than using it as a border? This is the class for you. You will need only 2.5 – 3 meters of a striped fabric and about a 1 meter of a coordinating fabric, for all of the blocks and the border of this 54 X 68 lap quilt. The stripes should be varied in size, a small border print will work. If you use a large border print you will need to buy 4 meters of fabric.
